I am going to preface this review by saying that I have not seen Dolpin Tale and I doubt that we will see Dolphin Tale 2, but I take it that this movie features a homeschooling family and that it interesting because there are so few movies out there that feature homeschooling. My children would be happy to see this movie for that reason alone I am sure! As I do not know a thing about the movies (beyond that fact that dolphins are rescued in each) I cannot comment on what I think of them, but I did choose to review a related curriculum as my children do love animals very much and would be eager to learn about dolphins.
Sadly, we were not able to get the included videos to load for us as our internet is painfully slow, but from the 15 seconds we did see that presenter seemed to be engaging. We were able to look through the PDF material that ws included and learned about dolphin anatomy and their lives in captivity and in the wild. The material was well written and there was always some material for the children to answer (though we just choose to read aloud). It was quick and easy to get through, but still informative. The children were sad that they could not see the video as well. The curriculum is currently featured at The Homeschool Movie Club for free so I encourage you to check it out. You do not have to see the movie to use this curriculum and it’s always nice to have a little extra to tie into a movie as well. I know that my children often look things up after we’ve finished a movie they idea of having further information in spot is kind of nice.
